Shared Journey Fertility Program 

a conscious approach to conception with Merciér Therapy

Pregnant Woman in Nature

Our fertility program is 6 weeks in length and can be used as a stand alone regime or in preparation for a more medically assisted cycle such as IUI or IVF. We highly recommend that you prepare your body properly prior to starting any medically assisted fertility cycle to help insure a successful first cycle. Your Shared Journey can be completed in time for your stim start. 

As a stand alone cycle without medical assistance is what is most natural and primal for your body. You will be guided to monitor your own ovulatory cycle along with our help for up to one year after finishing your therapy with us. 

Your Shared Journey Fertility Program is holistic and nurturing, offering guidance with relaxation, mindfulness & movement, journaling, self-care techniques, the comprehensive Preparing for Pregnancy wellness program containing food, lifestyle suggestions and supplement support. Complimentary therapies such as energy based healing practices, yoga, Chakra balancing, guided relaxation - visualization, and essential oils may offered to balance your energy centers, allow for deep relaxation, and energetic alignment. This optimizes function overall and is often helpful to further solidify your intention for conception and pregnancy. The program is custom tailored to each individual woman's situation and will be discussed in further detail at a consultation. 

When scheduling your consult please make sure to allow 60-90 minutes and bring any past medical records that may be helpful when discussing your history. During the consult an in depth health history will be obtained as well as a pelvic organ mobility evaluation will be done. 

Mercier Therapy is a deep pelvic organ visceral manipulation modality. When increasing mobility whether your shoulder joint or your uterus you're optimizing the true function of the area and helping to return blood flow which is therapeutic. When choosing to start the SJFP you'll receive 6 full hours of MT broken down into 1 hour intervals per week for 6 weeks.

For women coming in from a state or country other than Illinois we can finish your therapy within an intensive 4 day weekend. There is a hotel close to our office which is very comfortable and this is usually where our guests stay during their weekend.
